ABOUT EMPTY CHAIRS I (FORWARDS) & EMPTY CHAIRS II (Backwards) by Lia Parisyan
She is Queen of a cubical wasteland.
Changing corporate landscape wastelands, where once a protestant ethic served as the driving force behind the American economy. The Golden era, the height of consumer confidence and capitalism bustling with activity, growth and innovation- all celebrated printed and packaged. Glossy letters and cellophane sealed of promises of a novelty experience.
Now, all is replaced with sterility. What seems like a transmission from the future is stands as an accurate look at the present. The lively pulse of the American work force struggles to beat. An assembly line moving forward is carrying a single package in an empty warehouse without a final destination.
A Futuristic vision of the present lends to an atmosphere of absence. The pursuit of economic success and betterment has been eradicated. American spirit and dream stripped. This lone woman is the byproduct of once celebrated values being removed and transferred from the purpose of a postmodern American sentimentality.
The dollar was a symbol of strength, reliability once the most powerful recognized symbol of an individual freedom and purchasing power. Now rendered useless the entire confidence, pride and hope shook the peoples faith in the US government. The middle class has been dealt a mortal blow. The future grows dim.
A way of life, an economy, a nation of people and a value system are facing inevitable extinction.
American fortitude, golden paved streets. Not the industrial future of Metropolis but the unnatural light of particleboard and empty cubicles interrupted by the pulsing fluorescent lights and forced Glitch symbolism indicating that the system is failing. Finality reverberates with the last employee as she strolls through the empty floor with a mournful face, which bears witness to everyone downsized before her.
Glitch is a fictional television network focusing on gaming, including news, reviews, and help. Video consists of two 5 second idents for the network, a prime time lineup, and an animated logo. Made for Digital Design studio at Oklahoma State with Adobe After Effects, Adobe Illustrator, and Canon Vixia HV30.

My thesis, the experimental animation „Citius, Altius, Fortius“ (Latin for „Faster, Higher, Stronger“- the Olympic motto) explores the interplay of abstract shapes and motions.
How can the substance of motion be visualized. What degree of abstraction allows a communication with the viewer.
Therefor movements of famous Olympians where digitalised into 3D through motion tracking and rotoscoping of original footage of Olympic competitions. Camera motions and playback speed of the footage were borrowed and the movements of the athletes were recreated frame by frame.
The specific character of each sport is reflected in the visual language and the illustration of its motions.
